Hi Terrie Ann,

This is a terrific question! I would recommend getting your name out there by creating a business page on the website Yelp. Just a thought! :)

Good luck,

Try your local building department. I am sure plans had to be submitted when the house was built, and, depending on the age of the home, they may still be on file.

This will depend on the Owner's or Property Manager's requirements.
We are a Management company, who doesn't check credit, simply for the reason that almost everybody who wants to rent has an issue with his/her credit. Specially the ones who lost their home in foreclosure.
We do a Criminal Background check and look for problems with previous Landlordsn (Evictions) to qualify our Tenants.

Use this argument when you talk to somebody about renting an appartment, it just makes sense.

If you want to add someone to your deed, you can go to a local real estate attorney or title compnay, you will either need a copy of your deed or have them complete a title search to get a copy, they then can type up a new 'quit claim" deed adding the new person to the deed and then recording it for you.

The process should cost less than $200

I hope this helps

I think it depends on the severity of the complaint. Each case is different- my feeling is that the investigation will continue.

If this is your first time, Dexter, nothing can be more valuable than a good attorney. Later as you lend the ropes, then you can do you self, but the first time I suggest you use an Attorney.

Also, it the numbers are low enough you can go to small claims and get a judgment.. Your attorney can advise you as to the best way to handle this.

Did you try your homeowner's insurance? I don't know of any grants specifically for the repairs your need. Most grants are for first time homebuyers.

I would call your agent to determine if the insurance company will consider paying for the repairs.

Good Luck,

They will not allow that, in bankruptcy they can go back up to 2 years and any property you sold they can attach. it would be fraud as they will still have a lien on the property. you can avoid forclosure by calling the home retention department at your bank and discuss your options. you can also to a deed in lieu of foreclosure with the bank to try and avid teh bankruptcy p[art. you really should check with a bankruptcy attorney for the new bankruptcy laws, it is completely different than what it used to be and not as easy to wipe out debt. good luck working things out ... more

Jennifer De Vivo answered:
In some cases I have seen where a couple has legally separated and inhabited two residences and been able to claim a primary occupancy for mulitple addresses due to the separation. However, this question would best posed to a Real Estate Attorney. But from the surface, it seems you are in direct violation of your loan guidelines and the lender is well within their rights to accelerate the loan. The only other advice I can give you would be to sell the home and pay off the existing liens/loans. ... more

Jacqueline Fortier - JC Penny Realty answered:
Hello Richard,

When you view homes that you, are wishing to purchase, and are zoned for short term rentals, check who is the company managing the house or townhome at that time.
This will give you a good idea on how they keep the property maintained.

Also, you can go to
http://www.vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/usa/florida/central-disney-orlando
and search by community to ask owners what management companies they use and get feedback from them.

Most times you can get a good list of management companies from your Realtor.

Questions to ask..
Does your company take care of lawns and trees, pools, pest control, cleaning services and general maintenance?
How do you market my vacation home?
Do you have a rental calendar that I can view my homes rentals?
Am I able to use my home at anytime I wish?
Am I able to put renters in my vacation home addition to yours?

If I can be of any assistance, please feel fre to drop me a line.
